As part of the first generation of indie-rockers, Human Switchboard were transplants from Ohio that found their way into the NYC club scene of the early 1980s. Inspired by the writing of the Velvet Underground, H.S. worked up a great batch of edgy post-punk rockers with battling boy/girl vocals before imploding. This collection documents Human Switchboard's integral contribution to the history of alternative music.
